Happy birthday, Fr. Arnold Perham, CSV!

(L-R) Fr. John Milton, Br. Don Houde and Fr. Arnie Perham

In turning 91 today he joins two of his confreres, Br. Donald Houde, CSV, and Fr. John Milton, CSV, who reached the same age last month.

All three live together in the retirement wing of the Viatorian Province Center, where they continue to stay busy while riding out the pandemic.

Fr. Perham settles in at the Province Center library every afternoon, where he continues to develop math problems for Querbes Scholars and members of the Math Team at Saint Viator High School.

These three Viatorians begin each morning with daily Mass and they end the day with the rosary and evening prayers.

Together, they have advanced the Viatorian mission by more than 200 years, and remain committed to faith development and educating youth.

Their confrere, Fr. Charles Bolser, CSV, affirmed their leadership in the community, saying simply: “91 years of leading the way.”
